. yesterday we heard kathleen sebelius or just a short time ago today, she was in atlanta. did she give hints as to what they might be looking at or are they saying we're going to do this but don't know how yet? >> at this point they're not tipping their hand what they're going to be doing. sebelius only said to reporters in atlanta they didn't have a plan on the table at this point. they could have a plan in their drawer in their desk somewhere or floating around inside other offices inside hhs. they're not willing to talk about that at this point. there are various reports out there perhaps they're looking at expanding subsidies for people to obtain insurance on these exchanges. why would that happen? because if people are seeing their pols are being canceled and the only option that's available costs more money, then perhaps those expanded subsidies might be helpful. i have tried to ask a variety of officials over here at the white house as to whether or not that is the case. nobody is willing to confirm that, and of course, that may require some kind of legislation to expand those subsidi

to tell the public how many americans have signed up for obama care. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirming just a short time ago that the initial enrollment numbers are woefully short of the administration's target and far below even their lowered expectations. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. the number is 106,000. that's how many americans have enrolled in health care plans in the state and federal exchanges through the first month of obama care, just a fifth of what administration officials had projected before the launch of healthcare.gov and the opening of the exchanges. to make matters worse, the federal exchanges operating in 36 states accounted for only 27,000 of those successful enrollments. 80,000 originated in the state-run insurance exchanges. on a conference call this afternoon, secretary sebelius revealed the embarrassingly low number, but then opened herself and the administration up to outright ridicule by calling those numbers consistent with what massachusetts, a state of only 6.5 million people, experienced in its initial rollout of romney care. seb

kathleen sebelius, if she cannot reorganize and get the kind of team we need to fix this obama care website that she shouldn't be there. are you asking for her resignation? >> judge, when you've had three and a half years, $600 million to execute on the president's signature legislation and it's this wrong, you've got to ask who's going to be held responsible and is somebody who couldn't even answer whether there were shutdowns on the site as they were going on yesterday, is she really the person to do it. you understand that this website did the tip of the iceberg. there's so much more that has to be seen, that has to be fixed in obama care and she may not be the person to do it. >> congressman, apparently this administration was warned repeatedly by the contractors that the website was not ready to go live on october 1. at the same time that the administration is looking congress in the eye and the president is looking at the american people and saying this is going to be the best thing since sliced bread. and why didn't they heed the warnings of the contractors? >> you know, management 1
